A multitude of choices for Kingdom students wanting to study abroad

Cambodian students have far more choices in recent years in regards to education opportunities both locally and internationally.

While the growth of local education institutions offers more choices of study programs with better quality, many Cambodian students are also pursuing overseas qualifications, either through full scholarships, partial scholarships or through their own funding.

With options available to them, they face a new challenge – making an informed decision that best suits their career goals and personal aspirations, which is not as easy as it sounds!

Below is some information on some of the most popular study destinations for Cambodian students:

Australia

Australia is a popular destination for international students from around the world. Home to leading universities, it offers a relaxed, affordable study experience and strong career opportunities in some of the world’s most liveable cities.

Many Australian universities are ranked among the top 400 universities by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. There are large Cambodian migrant communities in Victoria and New South Wales.

It is also one of the world’s most beautiful countries, known as the “Land of the Long White Cloud”. Similarly, its education system is world class. From expert teaching staff to advanced facilities and resources, New Zealand is increasingly a leader in higher education.

The United Kingdom
